You can make plantains either sweet or savoury by adding sugar and cinnamon or salt. Keep in mind they can only be eaten cooked!

Made it healthier. Rather than using all of that oil, I just sauteed my sliced plantains in a few tablespoons of melted butter until they were slightly browned/carmelised on both sides. Worked great. SO good! Love plantains! Thanks, Donna! - 29 Sep 2008

My husband makes these, we all love them. You didn't mention that if they are green they need to be fried twice, flatten in the middle of cooking. Good with garlic & salt. We also slice them in circles. When very over ripe the sugars come out and caramelise. Great for breakfast. - 29 Sep 2008

I find that plantains that have turned mostly black are perfect for frying. Yum! - 29 Sep 2008
